Rejected from Western 2018

Recommended Posts

I guess I have the pleasure of starting this thread.

It changed at some point today. I'm not surprised, just didn't expect it so early.
cGPA/L2 3.0, 167, few years experience as a law clerk on Bay St.

Sorry to hear that. Western sends out rejections before all offers are completed?

Sorry to hear that, are you a mature applicant? If you aren't, maybe wait until you are - you'd think that LSAT plus the experience would give you a pretty good shot at most schools. 

Edit: I see that you're already in at other schools, so congrats for that!

Thank you. I didn’t qualify as a mature applicant this round. I scattershot applications and hoped that one school would value my experience in the regular category. I did get into Manitoba (a school that puts 0 weight on ECs, lol)

I didn’t, the “Applied” column just turned into a red x

Got an email yesterday asking me to check my account, and the red x was there.

CGPA: 3.29 LSAT: 165

Got the email yesterday as well. CGPA 3.5 L2: 3.9 LSAT 155 (not a shocker with this stat) Extensive extracurricular, professional work, and volunteer experience. Am also working a corporate, client-facing job which is why I was hoping for corporate law at Western. I guess it's just not meant to be.

Just received the email and the big red X on the student site, not surprised though with my LSAT. Good luck everyone!

Just logged into the student center and noticed my rejection:

CGPA: 3.19   L2: 3.41

LSAT: 152, 158, 156

Expected and I'm not very upset about it. Would have been nice to be accepted but what odds! Good luck to everyone else.

Sorry to hear this! May I ask, where it says "applied" does it literally change to the red X?

thank you! Western seems very stats based so im not upset about it. really hoping for Windsor to be able to stay in Ontario

Pretty much the whole box turns into a rejection. I can't remember what it was before but now it states:

Professional
Faculty of Law
W 2018
Not Offered Admission
Admissions Committee
X
